Thank you again everyone for your encouragement.
Surrogate had a repeat ultrasound today...and there is a little embryo measuring 7w1d with a heart rate of 145!
We still have thirty-three very nerve-wracking weeks to go, but thank you to Hashem for granting me at least this. Maybe G-d really does hear my prayers. I guess being at the Kotel (Western Wall) doesn't hurt.
Husband and I continue to have a wonderful time, and I may have eaten WAY too much popcorn while watching a wonderful new Israeli movie tonight called פלאות (Wonders) starring Adir Miller. I highly recommend it, by the way. (The movie -- not the popcorn binge).
I will also soon post pictures of a wonderful hike we did in the Ayun Wadi, aka נחל עיון or נחל תמנון. Absolutely beautiful! But it's late, and we have a fairly long drive tomorrow to Beer Sheva. Will update soon.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone and Shabbat Shalom if it applies :o)
